Carly Fiorina, Hillary Slayer

Carly Fiorina is rapidly carving a niche in the Republican field as the candidate who most aggressively and effectively goes after Hillary Clinton. This new campaign ad is a good example. The truth is that Hillary is a corrupt mediocrity with no significant accomplishments to her name, other than marrying Bill. Which you could say has been a mixed blessing. The fact that Fiorina is a woman who, unlike Hillary, made it on her own–I believe she started out as a secretary, and she did not marry success–gives her a unique standing to expose Hillary’s pretensions. Enjoy; you may see an ad first:

Attacking the opposing presidential candidate is a traditional function of a vice-presidential nominee. At the moment, I think Fiorina is best positioned to take on that role if she wants it.
